Signs experts say indicate divorce is on the horizon

| Oct 15, 2019 | Divorce

Indiana residents may be interested in hearing what some indicators are that could mean a person is headed for divorce. People reach a point in their life where they feel like they might want to get divorced, but they still have doubts. They appreciate that divorce will change their life, so it’s not a decision that they want to make quickly.

One sign that experts point to is not eating meals together. This could seem like a relatively minor issue, but it could indicate something bigger is going on in the marriage. There are a number of excuses couples use for not eating together. It could be that one partner has a different work schedule from the other. But whatever the excuse, it is usually an indication that the married couple is living a life that is disjointed, and this can lead to divorce.

Another sign is that couples are living totally separate lives. Couples that are happy with each other feel connected to each other, even if they are physically in different locations. When a couple is headed for divorce, they may start to make decisions without taking their partner into consideration. It’s not just the fact of living separate lives. It’s the fact that neither partner cares that the couple is living separate lives that indicates a bigger problem.

When a married couple mocks each other, either to other people or to their faces, this is a sign of disdain. This could include name-calling or making fun of each other during an argument. When this happens, it may be an indication of a rift that can’t be fixed in the marriage.
